Joy Behar: A Sick Freak Woman Who HATES Homeschoolers

Ok, just who the heck is Joy Behar anyway? I know, she is on "The View" on ABC, but WHO is she? Where did she come from and why does ANYONE listen to this crazy woman?
I mean it's bad enough to watch "The View" and see that flippin crazy Whoopi Goldberg, and the completely lost in her dementia, Baba Wawa, but this Joy Behar? She is freakin' nuts!
Now she has recently gone off on Homeschool children and their parents.

Watch the video and take special note of the following:
Her bigoted remarks dissing homeschooling begin at around the 6:10 mark and climax at 7:10 with Behar showing her contempt for both homeschooled students and parents: “A lot of them are demented when they’re homeschooled.”

Joy Behar of “The View” has the IQ of a rotten tomato, the manners of a donkey, the mouth of a street thug, and the chutzpah to declare that “a lot” of homeschooled children are “demented.”

I guess we should give thanks that she sits around a table yakking with other liberal women for a living instead of doing what she did before Hollywood embraced her. That’s right: She was a…public school teacher.

Poor Elizabeth Hasselback is just overwhelmed constantly by the evil trio.
Again, why does anyone care what this insane woman has to say? Do any of you actually watch this drivel? What happened to good old cooking shows like Rachel Ray? Heck I'll take Dr. Ruth, at least she just said naughty words about anatomy!
Do you women WANT to be represented as THE VIEW represents you?

Hey Bill!!

I love to watch the view-- call me crazy, but I do enjoy it. I REALLY dislike Joy. In fact, the last time I watched I was so upset with Joy that I was going to write Elizabeth a letter of HUGE praise for simply sitting at the same table with her. I love Elizabeth and think she represents for people like myself. I mainly just watch for E because she is awesome. I like that she is a good mom but also holds it down at her day job!!

I agree on Joy, she is dreadful! But, Elizabeth has no idea what she is talking about. She is uninformed and way out of touch with pretty much everything. She brings nothing to the table. What did Elizabeth do before she was on The View? Anything worth mentioning? Elizabeth and Joe the Plumber are equally uneducated and uninformed. And, every woman I know that homeschools her kids NEVER went to college. So, unless you demonstrate some kind of intelligence, you shouldn't be allowed to home school...I mean, what hapens when your kids hit the 7th grade and they ask questions you can't answer?

I think The View is THE most Annoying show on TV!!!

Ho, so you just slammed half the women that I know.
Hmm, Matt sometimes yer brain is in slow motion. I don't think you really know a dang thing about women do you?
Criminy. So it takes College to homeschool?
Hmmm, that's a new one on me. Now, let me ask my wife, with her 2 bachelors, one masters and nearly doctoral all in education what she thinks:
"honey, did you see this? What do YOU think?"
She says, "shut up".
Ok, so I will tell you, how old are you anyway Matt?
You see, back in the day, which wasn't long ago, teacher did not need bachelors. In fact many were just high school grads.
And that really doesn't matter anyway, as college did absolutely nothing for me and I have a degree and another minor degree.
I wouldn't dare teach kids, I am as dumb as a rock when it comes to teaching skills and my parenting skills ain't so hot either, but if a woman, or man for that matter, has great intelligence, enthusiasm and loves kids, does that make them LESS able to teach their children?
They are "morons"?
When they hit 7th grade, if you have to have a TEACHER answer those questions, then I would be not having kids if I were you.
Matt, sometimes your tact and social skills are about as high as a mules. Unbelievable.
You might wanna apologize to the many women reading here, who happen to be massively intelligent and you just told them they are stupid.
Good luck on that one bud.

ps: I like Elizabeth because she is kind.
Don't know if she's smart or not, but she is fair and kind. Gotta respect that.
Oh, and she was on "Survivor" which scores higher than WHEREEVER Joy Behar came from.

Yes, I am a Woman and I absolutely HATE This SHOW!!!!! Just thought I would add that!!

I love you!!

I didn't say the women that subscribe to your blog are stupid. You love to put words in my mouth! (kidding) I said EVERY WOMAN I KNOW that homeschools her children never went to college. It doesn't take college to homeschool, but you should demonstrate some intelligence. And, usually, going to, and graduating from, college has the tendencey to demonstrate that. Not always, but usually. And, by MY words, every woman I know that homschools her children is not bright enough to be doing it. My comment about the 7th grade is from an actual conversation I had with the parents. Because, in my spare time, I help several friends with their kids' schooling. And, I would also disagree that college did nothing for you. Even if it didn't teach you your current profession, it taught you how to think critically and analyze information.

So, for the record, I never called anyone of your friends dumb--you said I did. I also said you should have to demonstrate some kind of intelligence to homeschool. The requirement shouldn't just be that you love your kids and know how to feed them. I like cars and driving them, but I take mine to a trained mechanic...

For your info Bill:
I am 37. I have a B.S. in music and a B.A. and M.A. in history. I also hold a teaching credential and have a certificate from the local culinary school. I taught for 3 years. One year each at California State University Northridge, Moorpark College, and James Monroe High School. Arrogance aside, I was very good at it and know what a good teacher is. And I would say about 60% to 70% have no business doing it. I also don't have children and don't plan on having any as I was the oldest of 10 and spent most of my teenage years caring for and raising my siblings....I know, boo hoo for me...

And Elizabeth is just as irritating as the rest of them--nice or not. They have no business discussing politics. They should just interview Brad Pitt and giggle about his abs...

Matt, Children ask questions their parents can’t answer long before they enter school. There is much more to an education than merely regurgitating facts. To be truly educated, one must have developed a love for learning along with the skills necessary to learn independently, rather than needing to be spoon fed. In addition to these skills, one must learn to be an independent thinker. Due to the nature of home schooling, these skills are well developed before most students graduate from high school. I was home schooled from grades 2-12 and found the transition to college to be easy because I knew how to study and learn on my own.

By the way Matt, why must one be a “trained mechanic” to work on a vehicle? When I was in high school, I purchased a 1964 Ford pickup because I was interested in mechanics. I studied on my own and without assistance, I rebuilt the carburetor and brakes, replaced u-joints, ignition components, bearings, seals, gaskets, and many other parts.

Learning isn’t a great mystery. Home schooling works when parents teach their kids basic skills then get out of the way so their children can pursue their God-given abilities.


P.S. Happy Birthday, Bill!

My apologies for not saying Happy Birthday yesterday, Bill!

Craig...well said! You are absolutely right about my mechanic comment. I was merely suggesting that just because I love cars does not mean I can work on them. At 16, I bought a VW Bus and did all the work myself as well. So, I hear ya there! I say trained mechanic because you wouldn't take that '64 Ford to just anyone to have the work done if you couldn't do it yourself. You would want someone who had the experience to work on it. Not just some random guy you met at a 7-11 who loves old trucks. But, out of sheer laziness, I take mine to a professional. Plus, the warranty makes it difficult not to do so. I digress...

Homeschooling can absolutely work if the parents have the tools themselves to educate their children. All I was saying is that some of the people I know aren't mentally equipped to do such a thing which is why they've asked me to help. From MY teaching experiences, I am painfully aware of the lack of interest far too many parents take in the education of their children. In MY experience, roughly a third of the kids that came into my high school classes that had been homeschooled were ill-equipped. There were far more that had gotten the proper education from their parents. I know homeschooling can work and wasn't saying anything to the contrary. I was only illuminating my thoughts from my experiences.

I am also well aware that schooling is not regurgitating facts. I never taught that way myself. Knowing some facts help, but if a kid demonstrated real critical thought, asked good questions, and showed that they had read the books and attended class, they always did well.

I know we all have different experiences that leave impressions on us. I know some parents have done very well teaching their kids at home and others have no business doing it even though they think they can. Thinking you can doesn't always mean being able...
